    "KKK newspaper The Crusader, the voice of 'The Few, The Proud, The Fed Up' and the exclusively alabaster, has made it official.

    “'Make America Great Again' its front page howls, atop an editorial piece endorsing the Republican candidate and discussing its feeling of alienation in a 'new' America."

    But, but the Russians and YouTube videos made the kkk endorse Trump, not the DNC.

    Is it true that the Democratic Party started the KKK?
    Are they going against their roots?

    I am sure they are aware the black vote will be against whatever party they endorse.

    Not entirely. But at its founding we're talking about a time when the Republican Party was actually the left of the two major parties, with support from socialists. For example, Karl Marx endorsed Lincoln. Robert LaFollette, the "father of modern liberalism" who founded The Progressive magazine, began his career as a Republican. It really wasn't until the New Deal that there was a reallignment. The Democrats moved left and the black voters switched parties.

    Later, when Pres. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act he said that the Democrats had lost the South for a hundred years. Sure enough, four years later Nixon initiated what his people called "the Southern Strategy" which involved the gradual seduction of the segregationists of the south into the Republican Party, and with a bit of a respite with Carter then Clinton, the South has pretty much voted Democratic since.

    However, there may yet be another reallignment as diverse populations are moving into Virginia and North Carolina, as well as the Atlanta area of Georgia. Those states may be moving more liberal.

    The KKK meanwhile has long since left the Democratic Party. David Duke has always run on the Republican ticket. The racist Council of Conservative Citizens is Republican. White Nationalists, otherwise known lately as the "alt right" - Republican.

    Well said. All southern Confederate states (Dixie-crats) voted straight Democrat from before the Civil war, until Democratic President Johnson signed the Voting Rights and Civil Rights act into law. From that moment on; all southern Confederate states became Republican over the next 10 or 12 years; and, all of those States vote straight Republican today.

    It's so amusing that one can't think up anything funnier to trump it!

    God damn, even the puns are comedic irony.

    You know you're the man for the job when your own party hates you and your support base lives in trailer parks and roams around with bed linen over their heads.

    "He didn't mean to grab my pussy, he loves me really." Stated Trump supporter Elly-Mae as she ushered her 12 crack-addicted kids back into the trailer.

    The irony about Clinton's email scandal is that most Trump supporters can't even read or write.

    See? Endless... and this is improvised as I couch potato with a 40 degrees fever!

    And it's not even close to as amusing as reality.

    Except for North Carolina and Virginia, but yes.
